    The "college survey" thing is throwing me off. Am I trying to guess the actual answer, or what a bunch of college kids thought it was?

    Tough call. There are way more BJ tables, but craps plays a lot more turns. Roulette too slow, and Baccarat might in Macau, but I wouldn't think here. Not enough tables, interest, and overall take.

    I'll go with black jack. Everyone knows how to play it. Not everyone knows how to play craps

    Roulette hands down. Stand by a table a few times and watch those morons throw money down and lose.

    Nothing funnier than watching a group of ten Asians at the roulette table crunching numbers for 15 minutes on a pad of paper then walking up and putting $5 on red

    The most common game for your Europeans and Americans is blackjack by far

    I would say Roulette then Black jack and craps.I see so many people at Black jack betting like $200 a hand and losing.most end up busting out and turns out the dealer has 5 under that face and busts out.

    Lol....this post has actually made change my pick to Baccarat.

    No one bets more than the Asians.

    Baccarat is their favorite game.

    I've never seen more money on a table than I have seen on the Baccarat table in the high limit area in the casino I used to work for.

    Baccarat has to generate the most revenue.

    Thanks Dane!

    Very funny!

    I was at the gym while a trivia show was on. I can't believe the contestant got it right! I got it wrong myself... and I'm still surprised.



    The answer is C. Baccarat

    The study came from UNLV in the year 2013.

    Why do so many people lose at Baccarat???

    probably because most high rollers play baccarat.

    the house probably has the biggest edge in roulette though.

    It still isn't breakeven.

    I was surprised to see Baccarat was the winner. I guess you can fire off a lot of hands though.

    And there are so many Blackjack tables compared to Baccarat in Vegas. Still surprised at that stat.

    Makes sense. Done by unlv students. On the west coast with more Asians. Would be curious to know about Atlantic City.

    Good question. What do a bunch of fat guys wearing Under Armor shirts and gold chains usually like to play?

    I guessed baccarat because of the volume bet by the Asian whales.

    I remember an older friend of mine told me he believed Baccarat was the only table game you could have a "positive" outcome every time you played. He told me his formula years ago... but it didn't register in my head throughout all these years... because I have no clue as to the rules... or any kind of pattern.

    He told me something about always bet for the banker? Maybe that was one of his strategies? I don't know at what particular time... but he's been in Vegas approx 12 times... and he told me he always came away PLUS every time he played. He's really not known as a BS'er and he's very logical and down to earth personality. No... not a nerd. He's about 53 years old now... so he must of figured out something?

    Using Labouchere on a $5-$5000 Baccarat table is actually very +EV. Just sayin.

    I am shocked by this result. Baccart is boring unless you have two dates that are dressed for success.

    God I love craps. I used to get 100x odds at Binions. Do they still offer that?

    The best, most fun and lively tables in any casino.

    Stick man calling numbers in his own personal style.

    People tipping left and right.

    Incredible swings and runs.

    So easy to talk to chicks while playing.

    My father taught me how to play when I was 11.

    Black Jack has to be the most played card game at any casino anywhere which translates to highest turnover.

    As for creating most revenue for a casino I would think a game that is popular (with higher house edge) would be the answer and just don't see baccarat being the most popular or giving big edge to the house. The game that creates most revenue has to be Roulette based on RH's chart of house edge, its fairly popular and you dont have even to use brains playing that stupid game.
